Comprehensive care for hypertensives

Hypertension and its secondary diseases (heart disease, kidney failure, strokes, etc.) are the number one causes of death worldwide according to the World Health Organisation (WHO), with an anual mortality rate of 41 million. There are more than approx.
2 billion identified hypertensives globally, though the true figures are probably higher. There is also a need for action in helping uncontrolled hypertensives,primarily due to a lack of compliance or prescription of the wrong medication.

SCREENING

Risikopatient Diagnose Schaubild
Non-invasive blood pressure and vascular ageing screening
Clear presentation of results in the form of a report
Information and recommendation for action

With the vascular age measurement, you can offer your customers an innovative prevention service that can significantly reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke during their lifetime by early detection of high-risk patients and unknown hypertensives.

The non-invasive measurement is quickly performed in just a few minutes and the report is available immediately. The clear and concise outcome report is visualised by traffic light colors. This result compares the apparent ageing of the vessels with the actual biological age of the patient, giving people identified as high-risk the chance to take preventive measures, and ultimately significantly reduce the personal risk of a cardiovascular event.

The areas of application of the IEM screening solutions are diverse: Doctors and hospitals, but also in corporate health management, customers worldwide use screening technologies from IEM.

Using our validated ABPM system creates added clinical and commercial value, and enables the user to make a reliable diagnosis. A single blood pressure measurement is ideally supplemented by an ABPM in order to identify significant daily fluctuations in blood pressure. In this way different hypertension phenomena (e.g. white coat hypertension, masked hypertension, nighttime hypertension etc.) can be diagnosed.

IEM has been working on conventional methods of blood pressure measurement to incorporate pulse wave analysis (PWA), which includes key cardiovascular parameters and can be offered as an optional upgrade. Our long-term monitors can perform a pulse wave analysis alongside blood pressure measurement in the context of an automatic measurement cycle.

An analysis of individual PWA parameters provides a clearer picture of the cardiovascular risk than peripheral blood pressure alone. In addition, the ESH/ESC guidelines on classification and treatment of hypertension help to produce a significantly better indication when making a decision on medication. To ensure that the process of visiting the medical centre and treating patients is as efficient as possible, we integrate intelligent assistance into our products in the form of Smart Solutions*, and these also encourage patients to accept our ABPM systems far more easily.
